Spangler: a Fractal Sequence Display Algorithm
What is Spangler?
Spangler is a graphics algorithm that displays number sequences
(for example 2,6,5,4,3) in a fashion that can be described in english as
"Draw 3 groups of 4 groups of 5 groups of figures with 6 vertices where the lines
travel a distance of 2 vertices."
Is there software?
 The Spangler Applet
 A simple Java applet that lets you navigate around the Spangler Set
(ha ha) using just arrow keys.
 Form Interface
 The same Java applet but with an HTML form interface.
 The Javascript Version
 Static (for the moment!)
Is there an archive of nifty spangles?
